Many everyday objects give off some amount of electromagnetic (EM) noise, and when your squishy, conductive body comes into contact with an item, its EM signals enter your body. Disney's proof-of-concept augments a smartwatch to be able to read those signals, and apparently the signals are unique enough that the watch can discern and reliably identify different objects.
The Facebook COO and co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz sit down with Alan Murray at Fortune Global Forum in San Francisco.
Carnegie Mellon scientists are creating cutting-edge technology that could one day solve the shortage of heart transplants, which are currently needed to repair damaged organs. "We’ve been able to take MRI images of coronary arteries and 3-D images of embryonic hearts and 3-D bioprint them with unprecedented resolution and quality out of very soft materials like collagens, alginates and fibrins," said Adam Feinberg, an associate professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
Boeing’s Compact Laser Weapons System harnesses directed energy on its targets. The system recently reached a milestone at an exercise at Point Mugu, Calif. by tracking and disabling a moving, untethered unmanned aerial vehicle. The Compact Laser Weapons System is portable sets up quickly.
This episode focuses on the overall potential of additive manufacturing, particularly in the industrial sector.
A new world of flexible, bendable, even stretchable electronics is emerging from research labs to address a wide range of potentially game-changing uses. The common, rigid printed circuit board is slowly being replaced by a thin ribbon of resilient, high-performance electronics.
What's beyond silicon? There have been a number of proposals: protein computers, DNA computers, optical computers, quantum computers, molecular computers.
A background to The Millennium Project and an introduction to the Global Futures Intelligence System (GFIS).
Manu Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford, and his students have developed a synchronous computer that operates using the unique physics of moving water droplets.
